The last time asau was ranting about builtin pkg_install, he said that
you have to install every successive version after the one you have,
because that's all the compat support there is. This, if true, seems
However, the first thing someone installing 4.0 should do is update to
at least 4.0.1_PATCH if not 4.0_STABLE, both of which have newer
package tools. So maybe it doesn't actually matter...
